I have many episodes where I get pain in my chest which radiates into my neck and jaws. I do not get a burning in my throat like acid reflux. I have had my heart checked and done the stress test. Everything was fine, Does anyone else have this problem and if so what is it?
I was told I have costochondritis. It's the most horrible thing ever! I am actually having a flare up now and have been the last few days. I think it's so bad due to stress. But it feels like my chest, neck, throat, ears and head have a throbbing pain and very difficult to take deep breaths. I'm actually taking prednisone and it's not helping this time.
Oh Yes!!! It feels like your are having a heart attack.Do you use a heating pad on your back? That givws me some relief. Hugs & Love
I do not know if anyone me too ed esophageal spasms. Cardiac was ruled out for the same pain you described. BTW NItroglycerin helps the pain. I also found out a drink of ice water shocks the esophagus and relieves the pain. Drs did an endoscopy.
Thank you all for the information and ideas.
But it's only for a week you're not going to be addicted in a week. And you'll be so glad you did,because costocondritis does not go away on it's own. It's pretty common with fibro. I haven't had it for a couple of years now. Whatever choice you make, good luck!
